All are invited to worship with the community and to experience the peace emanating from this special place. The Chapel is always open for prayer and meditation.
Worship services are held on Sundays at 8:30 am across the entire year, with a second worship service at 10 am from the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend through the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.
Special worship service times on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, and for other special events, will be announced well in advance for planning purposes. Communion is served at services on the first Sunday of each month.
Seating indoors is on a first-come, first served basis. Outdoor seating is also available in the courtyard. We recommend bringing bug spray during the warmer months if you choose to sit outside.
Wearing of a mask is optional.
Check the Event Calendar for the dates and times of services.
So that the Chapel remains truly ecumenical in spirit, services are conducted by visiting ministers, both active and retired, from many denominations, who have been recommended by Island property owners.
Recommendation forms for visiting ministers can be downloaded here.
